  1. What would be better for reading books on a phone?
    4.5″ 720p or 5″ 720p or 5.5″ 720p ?
    There are some really good phone of these sizes under 18,000.

    I want Moto G only size is holding me back.

    Full HD 1080p will be costly, will demand more battery/GPU, heavy games might lag on a mid-range 1080p phone plus 720p is enough for reading books I guess.

    You can also suggest good phones for these sizes.
    I’m considering 4.5″ Moto G, 5″Xolo Q1100 or Zen Ultrafone HD (its cheap), 5.5″ upcoming HTC Desire 816.

    • for sole purpose of reading, it should be 5 or 5.5. bigger the better. 720p will be enough. go for IPS LCD display not AMOLED one.

        • AMOLED is a good display. Since each pixel is powered sepearately the blacks are awesome and contrast is awesome. but whites are not that good. IPS LCD is better for reading. in S3 and Note 2 and other HD AMOLED display offen you will see a blue tint around the edges when the background is white, thus IPS LCD is better for reading, for videos and other stuff you might go for AMOLED
